I can see Rocky's mind working. He gets the letter from the DCCC and instead of throwing it in the trash, as the rest of us do, he thinks...

"hmmm, can I get some mileage out of this?"

"Maybe my picture in both papers?"

So he dashes off a terse email to the DCCC and then calls the newspapers (and I'll bet local TV stations)to inform them and us of his brave position.

Rocky, heads up! Get a real job.

Go Big Blue!!!

Now if we could just get Rocky to say good bye to Utah and the US!

When will you people remember that pres. Bush worked an up hill battle with a Democrat House and Senate for most of his administration. Grow up and take the heat without blaming someone who had little control over a bunch of salivating Democrats. Just get rid of ALL OF THEM in Washington, start over and listen to We the People.

A hero. Keep swinging, Rocky!

I've gotta tell you, it's been absolutely surreal reading the comments by conservatives on this thread. Conservatives are becoming more and more divorced from reality daily. 

I mean in the Republican debate when all hands went up when asked if they would turn down a deficit reduction plan that was 10:1 cuts to tax increases. These clowns are so beholden to Grover Norquist that they wouldn't even increase taxes one dollar for every ten dollars of budget cuts. 

With leaders like this it should be no surprise that a conservative on this thread makes the claim that this is a conservative world, not a liberal one (whatever that means) or that another would be so ill informed as to claim President Bush had a Democrat congress  for most of his administration. 

No wonder we have the Republican and Tea Party candidates in office that we do, with these guys voting.


What took Rocky so long? The Democratic and Republican parties have been cesspools for decades.


Thank you for telling it like it is Rocky!

Ross Anderson bought into the Obama bandwagon hype and only now is finding out Obama can't deliver. The Palestinians could have told him that a year ago. Obama is foundering and his falling approval rating is the proof.

Don't know too much about Rocky Anderson cause I don't live in Utah. What I do know is that he has this right....If a new political party is the only way to take our country back from the big corporate money that's running it now, then let's do it. All of you who are bashing Rocky.....are you content that big corporate money is running both the Democratic & Republican parties? Sounds like you are. Well, I'm not and neither are millions of others. The Dems & Reps are both the same now....controlled by big money. Voting out the bad guys won't help cause there will always be another bad guy to take his place.
